How long to wait for editor response

Recommended Posts

Dear CWG,

 

I've submitted an article to a magazine in June and never heard from them. Nothing at all.  It has been 3 months now.  Should I conclude that the editor doesn't want my article and send it out again?   I want to share what I wrote, but  it seems to be stuck.  What is the best thing to do? 

 

Thanks for any advise you all have. :)

Hello folks,

 

Thanks for replying.  Carol, there was nothing said in their guidelines on how long to wait.  Thanks SW and Lynn for your advice and encouraging words. Now I'll try that inquiry!  :)

Three months?  I'd move on.  Just keep tabs an the magazine to make sure they don't decide to print your work under another name.

Hi everyone!  Sorry to take so long to write back.  I did sent that gentle letter to the silent magazine publisher. And, there was no reply. I concluded, after studying this magazine's website, that their magazine is not a good fit for my article anyway.  

 

So, right now I'm trying to find the right magazine for my article.  I'm hopeful that I'll find it soon, after reading some samples of another one.   

 

Thanks for your comments!  :)
